Pugs may have been given their charmingly apt name in the 1700s because they shared similar features with marmoset monkeys that were known then as “pugs” and commonly kept as pets. We can definitely see the resemblance.
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and when we saw this awesome t-shirt, we had to get it for her. It was a little tight in the shoulders, but overall, we were not disappointed by the result.
It doesn’t really feel like winter to us without a nice layer of fluffy white snow on the ground. We were delighted to see the snowflakes fly, but I think Nickie is still not sure what to make of it all.
Hats definitely are not for everyone, but Nickie is really making it work in each of these hats (although we’re pretty sure she would rather be chewing on the headgear than wearing it). It all ended with a little hat nap.
